Alone. Scared. Homeless.

Alone. Scared. Homeless. Lost. Ignored.

These words should never describe any young person. But they do.

More than 2,000 teenagers will turn to us for help this year. More and more teens are dealing with homelessness, abuse, serious conflicts at home, substance abuse and mental illness. These young people are our clients and the future of our community.

Hope. Purpose. Security.

Hope. Purpose. Security. Future.

These are the gifts you give when you support YSOC.

Your donation is the driving force behind our work – it's a reminder to struggling youth they have not been forgotten and someone cares.

You can give confidently to YSOC, knowing your donation is making a difference right here in our community. Because we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, your gift is tax deductible. And because we're a partner agency of the United Way of Central Oklahoma, you can give with trust knowing the United Way partners with the best of the best.

The Guardian Program

One of Youth Services dedicated, long-time board members, Dean Stringer, started the Guardian program with a desire to generate much-needed sustainable, monetary support for the vital work we do every day in Oklahoma County and surrounding areas. Guardians commit to making a minimum $1,000 gift every year for at least three years. These dollars help us provide the best quality of services possible to the thousands of teens and families we serve. To learn more about the Guardian program, please contact Melanie Anthony, Director of Development and Community Engagement at or 405-235-7537. You to can be a part of "Changing Young Lives."
